Tucson AZ Day 1

We rolled into Tucson around noon today and got setup in Miracle RV Park. This park is one of the half price parks available to us in the city of Tucson. We would not be staying here otherwise. We will only be here tonight and then we are moving to a resort that looks very nice for the next three days.
 

 In keeping with the spirit of Easter we visited two separate churches here in Tucson, St Augustine Cathedral and San Xavier Mission. Both theses churches are beautiful as the pictures shows. St. Augustine was built in1896. It is fashioned after the Cathedral of Queretaro in Mexico. The Mission of San Xavier Mission Is much older.  It is called the White Dove of The Desert, Father Kino first visited the site in 1692 and built the chapel in 1700, it is one of the finest pieces of Spanish colonial architecture in the United States.

We ended up on the University of Arizona campus for our lunch, a wonderful meal of Easter Pizza, it was 85 degrees and sunny and we were able to sit outdoors and enjoy our meal.
